Postat 07-07-2021 in Events

The royal train witnessed an important part of Romania’s history going through three forms of government: monarchy, communism and democracy.

The TRAIN = The railway transport is cleaner

Postat 18-06-2021 in Events

Although road transport has advanced in recent decades, it is expensive and does not provide a solution for all people. It has detrimental effects on environment and climate, but railway transport tends to solve all these problems. According to the EU Green Agreement by 2050, the aim is to switch to the use of alternative fuels for the total elimination of carbon emissions, and the railway transport can help because the railway pollutes 8 times less and emits 9 times less CO2 than the road transport, according to CER. For this reason, in Romania it is invested in electrification of the main railway lines, modernization and efficiency of electric locomotives, the purchase of trains with alternative fuels (hydrogen trains), the modernization of all coaches with…

In 1869, Romania became the third country in Eastern Europe, after Russia and the Ottoman Empire (in Dobrogea) which had a railway line.

This was an isolated line with a length of 67 km, which connected the capital with the Danube and a direct connection with the East and the West.
